展區介紹

六樓-經典太和

嘉義梅山鄉太和村群山環抱,清晨陽光普照藍天青山明暗分明,午後氤氳繚繞山景忽隱忽現宛若水墨畫,因此珍貴雲霧而茶葉品質優異。

八八風災後,在太和居民除了重建家園外,在與藝術力的交流後,發展了茶席、茶屋等與自然友善共存的「茶文化」。在地青年茶農,在風災後更思考茶業與自然間的關係,進而發展出環境友善的野放茶。

太和社區發展協會的前理事長郭文國、擅長各式竹藝與傳統工藝人稱「牛伯」的鍾少博、經常幫忙協調社區與外部連結大小事的楊麗芳、開發野放茶的簡嘉文、葉人壽與各茶屋屋主等人,加上太和11家自有茶品牌,是此次國立臺南生活美學館「藝術轉動社區」展出亟欲推薦給大家的太和經典。

Portraits of Tai-He

Located in the Meishan Township of Chiayi, Tai-He is a small village surrounded by mountains. At daybreak, the rising sun illuminates the sky creating intense colors against the hills. In the afternoon, the hilltops sometimes disappear in the fog and clouds. The scenery brings about both an artistic atmosphere of traditional ink wash painting and provides a misty landscape that contributes to excellent tea production.     

The catastrophic typhoon Morakot resulted in the reconstruction of Tai-He village. To promote environmentally friendly “tea culture”, local residents have created tea tastings and teahouses through collaboration between artists and the community. Young tea farmers have also begun to rethink the relationship between the tea industry and nature while developing organic tea.

The project, “Art for Social Change”, launched by National Tainan Living Art Center presents the selections representing Tai-He Village, including Kuo Wen-kuo, the former chairman of Tai-He Community Development Association, Chung Shao-bo, also known as “Uncle Ox” who is a master of traditional and bamboo crafts, Yang Li-fang, the coordinator for networking between external groups and the community, Jian Jia-wen, the promoter of organic tea, and Yeh Ren-shou, together with several teahouse owners, and 11 iconic tea brands in Tai-He.

七樓-藝轉太和

2006年由藝術家吳瑪悧所推動的「嘉義縣2006北回歸線環境藝術行動」,曾經選定5位藝術家進駐社區,與社區共同推動茶文化、陶藝、木工、繪畫與拍照等,而其中陶藝家蔡江隆、吳淑惠也因為陶藝茶具的課程,協助梅山鄉太和村開啟了獨特的茶席文化,更進一步地推動太和「戶戶有茶席」的願景。

2009年八八風災後,太和災情慘重。2013 年,南華大學建築與景觀系陳正哲副教授觀察太和有著特殊的茶產業存在,因此,協助推動了茶屋文化,社區居民還因此組成「自己起建築團」。另外,在地居民則因風災思索茶產業與自然的關係,而開啟了野放茶的友善自然的農法。無論是在地居民抑或是進駐的學者、藝術家在藝術力的推動下,在災後因此建構了太和特殊的茶文化,見證了藝術轉動社區的可能性。

此次展間由各個身懷絕技的太和村民,帶來四種不同風格的茶席,將平面茶席延伸至立體茶空間美學,邀請旅人一起入席,感受如沐在茶香四溢的氛圍中,來一場與茶文化、茶生活的藝術之旅。

When Art Meets Tai-He Tea

The project, “2006 Northern Tropic Environment Art in Chiayi”, was initiated by the artist Wu Ma-li in 2006. Five artists were selected to take up residency in the local community of Tai-He. Through collective efforts, the cultures of tea, pottery, woodcraft, painting, and photography have all been promoted. A program focused on pottery and tea sets, led by the ceramic artists, Tsai Jian-long and Wu Shu-wei, has helped to both establish a unique tea tasting culture in this small village of Meishan and has facilitated a process whereby “every household has its own style of tea tasting”.    

In 2009, Typhoon Morakot caused catastrophic damage in Tai-He. In 2013, Chen Cheng-che, Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture and Landscape Design at Nanhua University, observed the distinctive tea culture of the area and then helped to build teahouses. Subsequently, local residents even formed a group called “Build by Ourselves”. The traumatic experience of the typhoon also encouraged the residents to rethink the relationship between the tea industry and nature, which has since led to the eco-friendly cultivation of organic tea. Through art, collaboration between the locals, professionals and artists has formed a unique Tai-He tea culture which has played a vital role in the reshaping of the Tai-He community.

In the exhibition, four different styles of tea tastings are presented by Tai-He villagers with extraordinary skill. The tastings provide seats for travelers while also transforming the space in an aesthetic way. Visitors are invited to bathe in the relaxing atmosphere filled with tea aromas, while embarking on an artistic journey to explore tea culture and life.
